Take flight from Ottawa and journey back in time on an exploration of the High Arctic. As a modern day adventurer on this new 17-day exploration, trace the route of Sir John Franklin’s fateful mid-19th century expedition to find the fabled Northwest Passage. Cruise on waters that few have sailed and set foot on lands that even fewer have walked, taking in incredible untouched scenery, searching for wildlife, and getting up close to fjords, glaciers and icebergs. Follow the coast of the islands of the Canadian High Arctic to see the graves of lost explorers, polar bear research stations, traditional Inuit communities, walrus waters and archaeological sites. Cross Baffin Bay to Greenland – a region ruled by ice – and see mountains towering over colourful settlements, soaring glaciers, and huge ice shards be born into icebergs. Hike the tundra and mountains, and glide a kayak along the surface of a bay in the presence of icebergs and glaciers. This is a new legend to add to the stories of the Northwest Passage.
